What does the product description say?
"Optimizing the skin’s ph level is an important step towards overall skin health and protection from environmental damage and the aging process."
WIMJ summary

This product contains centella asiatica extract. This ingredient might be able to help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness, but there is not enough evidence that it actually works.

What does the product description say?
"Once a strong barrier function is achieved, secondary conditions, such as hyperpigmentation and weakened elasticity can be addressed."
WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (glycyrrhiza glabra root extract) that could help reduce hyperpigmentation (for example, post-acne marks or age spots) in theory, but there is not enough evidence that they actually work.

What does the product description say?
"Bioactive pumpkin and papaya enzymes are rich in iron, zinc, C and K to infuse the skin with phytochemicals and fortifying compounds, while accelerating the exfoliation process."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

What does the product description say?
"Healthy acid mantle maintains moisture and keeps skin soft and smooth."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: cucurbita pepo seed oil, aloe barbadensis leaf extract.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (centella asiatica extract) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
